Art. 5 – How Prima Parc points are awarded
5.1 Prima Parc points (hereinafter “points”) are the basic unit of calculation used by Parc Hotels Italia for determining a Member’s Prima Parc level. In the subscription phase, each Member is assigned an ID number in the Prima Parc database, associated with an account where the Member’s points are tallied.
5.2 Members earn points based on the number of nights spent aboard Costa ships and total onboard purchases as indicated below:
Points: Members earn points based on the bill at the end of their stay, except for fractions of such sums, if the booking is made directly by calling the booking office or by booking online on a Parc Hotels Italia hotel website. The tourist tax is excluded.
Points spent in the hotel: Members also earn points by utilising the paid services at the hotel, namely restaurants, bars, wellness centres, sports centres, club house. Hotel shops are excluded.
5.3 Points are automatically awarded 30 days after the end of each stay. Members can check the points they have earned online, by registering in the reserved area on the website www.primaparc.parchotels.it.
5.4 Any other way to earn points on a Member's account and their validity will be notified to each Member with specific communications.
5.5 Members who think that their points total should be higher than the total in their account should send the booking office copies of bookings and payment receipts for expenses incurred during any stay they think has not been counted, within 2 months of the final day of the cruise in question. Members can make requests for points to be updated by sending their full name and Prima Parc card number, along with the required documentation, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.6 Points are always awarded at the end of the stay and not during the stay itself, even if the stays are consecutive. It will not be possible to change Prima Parc level while on consecutive stay, even if they are a part of separate bookings.
